QNAP has today introduced the TS-x73A NAS series featuring an AMD Ryzen V1000 series v1500B quad-core 8-thread 2.2 GHz processor and 2.5 GbE networking. This reliable and secure NAS series delivers high cost-efficiency with multiple value-added capabilities, including PCIe expansion, multi-cloud backup, cloud storage gateways, multiple backup and data protection methods, and storage capacity expansion solutions. The TS-x73A series uses the app-driven QTS operating system but can switch to the ZFS-based QuTS hero to provide users with greater choice and functionality.

The TS-x73A series includes 8 GB DDR4 RAM (supports up to 64 GB, supports ECC RAM), and the two -built-in M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD slots allow users to leverage Qtier Technology and SSD Caching to achieve optimal performance. The dual 2.5 GbE RJ45 ports can deliver up to 5 Gbps transfer speeds under Port Trunking. In addition, the two PCIe Gen 3 x4 slots allow for installing expansion cards to enhance NAS functionality – such as a 5 GbE/10 GbE network card, a QM2 network/storage card, a wireless adapter, or a SAS/SATA expansion card for connecting to TL SAS, TL SATA and REXP expansion units.
Graphics cards are also supported by the TS-x73A series, allowing for optimized graphical calculations and transformations. This can greatly boost the performance of applications such as video editing, 4K UHD transcoding, and imaging processing in QTS. Graphics cards can also be allocated to virtual machines via GPU passthrough.
